That's about the size of the largest fish I ever caught. It was a black drum, using live shrimp off of a jetty in Port A. Thought I had gotten snagged on one of the rocks...and then it moved. Hoping the whole time that my leader wouldn't break. That was fun.

Yeah was a big one. It took me 30 minutes to land this fish. Epic battle. But returned her safely back in the river.

I don't remember how long it took, but it for sure was an epic battle. I had spaghetti arms afterwards. Fantastic. What fish is that?

Still paling in comparison to the other fish in this thread, but this fall has been a blast. Landed a brown and a land locked atlantic today. Also threw in the photo I got of my buddy and his big male

Nice fishes, guys!

That's it...one of these days we need to skip wheeling and do a NOVA rover fishing trip. There has to be a good trout spot near here reachable via Defenders.

Went to Pulaski this past weekend. Glad I took the mazda, because my Rover's engine blew up when I was gone...

Didn't catch anything but had a blast.
